[texts]Moving from Outsider to Insider: Peer Status and Partnerships between Electricity Utilities and Residential Consumers. (Volume 9) - Morris, Peter
This article is from PLoS ONE, volume 9.AbstractAn electricity demand reduction project based on comprehensive residential consumer engagement was established within an Australian community in 2008. By 2011, both the peak demand and grid supplied electricity consumption had decreased to below pre-intervention levels. This case study research explored the relationship developed between the utility, community and individual consumer from the residential customer perspective through qualitative res...

[texts]Survival of pneumococcus on hands and fomites. (Volume 1) - Smith-Vaughan, Heidi
This article is from BMC Research Notes, volume 1.AbstractBackground: Pneumococcal hand contamination in Indigenous children in remote communities is common (37%). It is not clear whether this requires frequent inoculation, or if pneumococci will survive on hands for long periods of time. Thus the aim of this study was to determine the survival time of pneumococci on hands and fomites. Findings: The hands of 3 adult volunteers, a glass plate and plastic ball were inoculated with pneumococci susp...
[texts]A multi-center, randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of intravenous ibuprofen for the treatment of fever in critically ill and non-critically ill adults. (Volume 14) - Morris, Peter E
This article is from Critical Care, volume 14.AbstractIntroduction: Hospitalized patients are often unable to ingest or tolerate oral antipyretics and recently an aqueous formulation of intravenous (IV) ibuprofen was approved by the US-FDA for the reduction of fever in adults. Methods: We evaluated IV ibuprofen to reduce fever exceeding 101.0°F, measured as the percentage of subjects achieving a temperature

[texts]A phase I study evaluating the pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability of an antibody-based tissue factor antagonist in subjects with acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome. (Volume 12) - Morris, Peter E
This article is from BMC Pulmonary Medicine, volume 12.AbstractBackground: The tissue factor (TF)-dependent extrinsic pathway has been suggested to be a central mechanism by which the coagulation cascade is locally activated in the lungs of patients with acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS) and thus represents an attractive target for therapeutic intervention. This study was designed to determine the pharmacokinetic and safety profiles of ALT-836, an anti-TF antib...

[texts]Measuring nasal bacterial load and its association with otitis media. (Volume 6) - Smith-Vaughan, Heidi
This article is from BMC Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders, volume 6.AbstractBackground: Nasal colonisation with otitis media (OM) pathogens, particularly Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis, is a precursor to the onset of OM. Many children experience asymptomatic nasal carriage of these pathogens whereas others will progress to otitis media with effusion (OME) or suppurative OM...

[texts]Azithromycin for Indigenous children with bronchiectasis: study protocol for a multi-centre randomized controlled trial. (Volume 12) - Valery, Patricia C
This article is from BMC Pediatrics, volume 12.AbstractBackground: The prevalence of chronic suppurative lung disease (CSLD) and bronchiectasis unrelated to cystic fibrosis (CF) among Indigenous children in Australia, New Zealand and Alaska is very high. Antibiotics are a major component of treatment and are used both on a short or long-term basis. One aim of long-term or maintenance antibiotics is to reduce the frequency of acute pulmonary exacerbations and symptoms...

[texts]Randomized placebo-controlled trial on azithromycin to reduce the morbidity of bronchiolitis in Indigenous Australian infants: rationale and protocol. (Volume 12) - Chang, Anne B
This article is from Trials, volume 12.AbstractBackground: Acute lower respiratory infections are the commonest cause of morbidity and potentially preventable mortality in Indigenous infants. Infancy is also a critical time for post-natal lung growth and development. Severe or repeated lower airway injury in very young children likely increases the likelihood of chronic pulmonary disorders later in life...

(Volume 14) - O'Grady, Kerry-Ann F
This article is from Trials, volume 14.AbstractBackground: Recurrent protracted bacterial bronchitis (PBB), chronic suppurative lung disease (CSLD) and bronchiectasis are characterised by a chronic wet cough and are important causes of childhood respiratory morbidity globally.

[texts]Bronchiectasis exacerbation study on azithromycin and amoxycillin-clavulanate for respiratory exacerbations in children (BEST-2): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial. (Volume 14) - Chang, Anne B
This article is from Trials, volume 14.AbstractBackground: Bronchiectasis unrelated to cystic fibrosis (CF) is being increasingly recognized in children and adults globally, both in resource-poor and in affluent countries. However, high-quality evidence to inform management is scarce. Oral amoxycillin-clavulanate is often the first antibiotic chosen for non-severe respiratory exacerbations, because of the antibiotic-susceptibility patterns detected in the respiratory pathogens commonly associate...
